Childhood Laughter
~~~


A path through gentle woodland shadows
disappears through reminisce
As childhood laughter guides your daydreams
to magic jungles
with enchanted mist
~
A path through dangers darkest trials
monsters, dragons, pirates ... more
A land so real
you taste rare apples
from orchards guarded
by an ogres lore
~
A secret path to fortress hidden
high amongst the tallest trees
A secret vault
to hide rare treasures
like smokes and comics
and
' magazines '
~
A path to wander by the hour
leads us back to days out grown
Until stress and worry
ejects us
to the reality
of our
paging phone
~~~

Rex..Love this!! And...the picture fits so well.  Sat here staring at this piece for a long time, remembering...those carefree days...riding the little train at Springbank, the carousel, hiding magazines...HIDING MAGAZINES!?  That part made me smile!  Enjoyed, Nancy.

What memories you have brought back to me to-day! Thankyou....it reminds me of a creek I used to play in, although I was warned not to. I couldn't help myself, I was Queen of the Jungle, saving baby lions from the raging waters!!! Of course, it was just a shallow tributary of the Thames, in London Ontario that is. Well written!! Chris

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

Thankyou Titia ... glad you enjoyed it

Charisma ... thankyou ... the poem I wrote when first saw this picture ... it ushered up all the old childhood memories

Thanks Nancy ... where I live now ... used to be a forest when I was a boy ... a stream ran through it, with trout, and an apple orchard at the northern edge where we used to borrow apples from a farmer who couldn't run as fast as we.
Those were the days ... colecting puff balls and kicking the over ripe ones to dust clouds and kicking the scunk cabage and pushing a friend into it

Nightshade ... well well, another Londoner ... there are quite a few of us here at Passions now ... good to hear from you, thanks
